Hi Anjo, it's great to see you here. I read your fond farewell posts on Google+ and checked out your Dribble. Quite fascinating to get some perspective on what life as a designer in the Philippines is like.
I only got to watch the first 10 minutes of the Google intro, but 100 million people on 8,000 islands?! I can't imagine the connectivity challenges. I noticed the speakers said hello in their native languages but then switched to English. Is that common?
Google may be determined where you are and do a great job with connectivity, but they have a very spotty record with that here in the states — even in their home city of Mountain View, where I live. We were really excited to get free wifi and they mounted antennas on light poles all over the city, but I'm not aware of many people who use it. I think it's just over capacity. I hope you have better luck.
